Mum and I stayed in the Africa Room for two nights while we were visiting the volcanoes national park. The common room was very comfortable and clean - I sat out here and used the computer and the sound of the pond water feature was very relaxing. It was also very well appointed with boardgames and comfortable chairs and tea and coffee facilities. The room itself was unique and is one of the hotels that stands out in my mind from my trip. The outdoor lanai with kitchen facilities was great. Very close to local resturants and quiet during the night. Loved the town of Volcano and can't wait to come back here again. I'd definitely stay at Chalet again.
"Can't beat location and (breakfast) at these Falls"
We stayed in the Hibiscus room. This room is really nothing to write home about as its a bit cramped even for two people and there is nothing especially nice about the room, bed or bathroom UNTIL you consider that it sits right in front of the falls. You can just wake up in the morning and take one step outside and the falls are right there...absolutely rare experience. The property is very well kept including the trails around the falls. The breakfasts are top notch and it provides a great time to get tips from the staff.
